I’m not a huge supporter of the Oscars but I had an opportunity to be a part of an advertisement with one of my favorite movies of all-time. That movie is the Eddie Murphy classic Coming to America. Here is the advertisement that was posted to the Academy’s Twitter account. I am cosplaying Prince Akeem in this picture. Cosplay has opened so many doors for me and I’m grateful. In the ad with me are @dcblackgeeks. Pic taken at @dragoncon. There is still not a lot of representation in this ad other than my group. There is still so much work that needs to be done. Mystery Dinner Studios is here for that purpose.
To all the movie lovers out there… the movies love you right back.
